How does a Christian artist cultivate and shape culture?
Today's culture is filled with images and God has saturated our world with meaning. Through Redeemer's Art program, students are given the opportunity to use the arts to open their eyes, cultivate and seek God's calling and intended purpose for creation.
Art is a Bachelor of Arts degree program. It is offered as a general major and as a minor.
Right from the start, small class sizes allow for deep relationship building with peers and mentoring by faculty. It is a powerful context where students have space to discover their own voice and dare to accept God's challenge to be a culture-maker and shaper.
Your art classes are focused on the studio. Studio work integrates mind, body, and spirit in a unique way, balancing the study of technique (perspective, colour, materials) and the exploration of concepts and themes. You will approach the history of art, contemporary art practice and theory, with seriousness, developing strategies for navigating the difficult intersection of religious belief and contemporary art.
The Core Curriculum is a set of 10 courses that every student takes. The courses are woven through every major and get you to think deeply and broadly about what you’re studying. Think about it this way…
The studio is where students' faith and vision come together, leaning to express their authentic voice through the work of their own hands. Students push their skills through courses like Figure Drawing, think deeply in courses like Faith and Art, and explore the rich history of art and culture in courses like Modern Art History.
In their final semester, art students prepare a Senior Exhibition where they set their own questions, respond to their deep passions, and create a cohesive body of work for public display in Redeemer's Art Gallery.
There is a museum/gallery trip each semester where students are encouraged to engage with challenging contemporary work to stretch, think and grow. Every other year, a trip to New York City is an opportunity for students to encounter the things they've studied face-to-face and be inspired by the work of others.
